New York police investigating 2 suspicious packages resembling pressure cookers says they are not explosive

At least three devices believed to be pressure cookers have been left in or near NY subway stations Friday morning, according to reports.

Just over an hour later, a third rice cooker was found near a garbage can in Chelsea.

New York Police Department Counterterrorism Chief James Waters tweeted Friday that the bomb squad cleared the items found at the Fulton Street station. Police say two suspicious objects that prompted an evacuation of the major lower Manhattan subway station are not explosives.

The discoveries of the devices, which the city's chief counterterrorism officer called "rice cookers that could be mistaken for pressure cookers", raised concern because of the latter's previous use as makeshift bombs in NY and Boston. That suspicious item has also been deemed safe, according to police.

"The suspicion is that they were placed there to suggest that they were electronic devices and possible bombs", Gov. Andrew Cuomo said on WCBS-AM after the all-clear was given. A third cooker of the same type was later discovered 2 miles (3 kilometers) away on a sidewalk. "But we need to know the facts behind this". He had actually placed three bombs that day but only one went off.

In a tweet, the department said, "Expect a police presence and emergency vehicles in the area". Cuomo said. "We learned the hard way after 9/11, and we are prepared".

At a press conference Friday, NYPD Deputy Commissioner of Intelligence and Counterterrorism John Miller said that "there's a person of interest" in the investigation, adding "I would stop short of calling him a suspect".

De Blasio thanked both police "and everyone who kept calm through this".

Friday's incident comes almost three years after a pressure cooker bomb went off in the New York City neighborhood of Chelsea, injuring at least 30 people.

Ahmad Rahimi, an Afghan-born man who sympathised with jihadist causes, was sentenced to life in prison over that incident.

There was also an explosion in Midtown Manhattan in December 2017 when a Bangladeshi man, Akayed Ullah, detonated a homemade bomb in a pedestrian tunnel connecting two subway lines and a bus terminal.
